Pretty good TV thriller, with a solid performance by Treat Williams.
22 May 1999 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

36 hours to die is not a great film, but when you consider that it was made for TV it is actually pretty good. Treat Williams (The Deep End of the Ocean, The Devil's Own) stars as a business owner who recently had a heart attack and stays home with his brother running the business. It turns out that his brother had gotten himself in trouble and in order to get himself out of it is allowing a mafia group to take over the business without selling it. When Williams finds out he tries to keep his business and gets pushed into a battle to save his business and his family. This is a fairly entertaining film with a couple of well-done shootouts. Williams is good in the lead. The rest of the acting is solid too.
